SpycerBox, DVS's flexible and modular storage solution, allows for high-availability scenarios.

Hanover/Las Vegas. From April 16-19, DVS will be presenting its latest products at booth SL6815. The leading manufacturer of hardware and software solutions again stresses its philosophy of openness and high-availability by further strengthening its systems flexibility.

At NAB 2012, DVS will present version 5.0 of its award-winning DI workstation CLIPSTER®. Visitors to the DVS booth will experience a sophisticated 3D workflow thanks to STAN (Stereoscopic Analyzer) software which is now integrated into CLIPSTER®. STAN's exceptional algorithm analyzes and corrects the 3D material geometrically, including keystone correction. Along with its acclaimed Digital Cinema Mastering Tool, CLIPSTER® supports mezzanine files such as IMF, providing the digital master as a file package with different video, audio, subtitles or closed caption tracks. In combination with RAW cameras, CLIPSTER® assures massive flexibility - e.g. by supporting RAW material from RED®, ARRI and Sony cameras. Furthermore, CLIPSTER® supports form ats like Panasonic AVC -Ultra, Sony SR, Apple ProRes 422 and Avid DNxHD®, and is capable of reading and writing OpenEXR. Equipped with state-of-the-art hardware, CLIPSTER® offers tremendous security and speed.

DVS's multi-channel broadcast server VENICE follows the company's philosophy of openness. In heterogeneous, file-based production environments, users benefit from seamless processes and thereby from remarkable workflow efficiency. VENICE's broadcasting flexibility is shown in various tasks like ingest, transcoding or play-out, since they can be freely structured and processed automatically. VENICE is now available in a 2U chassis offering space for up to 9 TB of internal storage and up to 4 video channels. Equipped as standard with 10 Gigabit Ethernet and USB 3.0 interfaces, the DVS video server meets revolutionary standards for the fastest data processing and transfer speeds, all in a small form factor.

Thanks to their openness and high performance, the DVS storage systems are the perfect platform when it comes to creating a storage architecture for broadcast and high-end post production environments. Clients benefit from unparalleled system performance, especially from the SpycerBox family which has increased its capacity up to 72 TB. Even in mission-critical processes, the DVS SpycerBox allows for high-availability scenarios. SpycerBox can be integrated as a NAS or a SAN configuration - or as a combination of the two - into existing system architectures, providing users with a low -latency end-to-end solution that forms the core of their infrastructure.

CinePlay, a new member to DVS's sophisticated family of video boards, has been specially designed for customers who want to develop a cinema player that will play out material as specified by the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative). Equipped with two HD -SD I inputs, two HDMI links and powerful decompression hardware, a single CinePlay board can play out 3D material in 2K 4:4:4 at 24 fps for each eye.

Bernhard Reitz, Head of Product Management at DVS: "Visitors to NAB have high expectations on quality and are always impressed by DVS's latest technological breakthroughs. Once again, DVS delivers unique and future-oriented solutions for post and broadcast workflows. We are looking forward to presenting CLIPSTER® and VENICE with our newest enhancements and dynamic features."
